This question already has an answer here:
I asked a question few days ago on Stack Overflow, but didn't got the specific answer for considerable amount of time. So to drew more attention to my question i started a bounty of worth 50 reputation on the question.
Now the bounty is in grace period, but I read it in bounty info page that there is no refund of reputation in case no answers are received as a result of bounty. Isn't it unfair to person like me who is having less reputation on Stack Overflow to loose such reputation without any expense? I didn't got the answer I wanted and still I lose my reputation. Why there is no refund of reputation if no answers are received in bounty period?
